My Students

As a teacher at one of the most diverse public schools in San Francisco Unified School District, my students come from a wide range of backgrounds and communities. We are a Title 1 school, with over half of our students from low income households and many students who are English language learners or qualify for special education services.

My students come from all different walks of life, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds and neighborhoods, but come together in our classroom every day to learn.

Many of my students take bus rides of over an hour each morning to get from their home neighborhood to my classroom, and I want to ensure that their commitment--and the commitment of their families in choosing to send them to our school--is honored and valued by providing the best quality materials and learning experiences possible for each and every one of my 2nd graders.

My Project

In the second half of 2nd Grade, students focus in on using their newfound independence and developing reading skills to take on the challenge of reading "longer and stronger". For many of my students, this means reading their first ever chapter books--an incredible milestone in their reading careers that brings students so much pride in their abilities! To continue to encourage their reading growth as we tackle more difficult books, students meet in book clubs focused around a particular book series to work together to understand characters, dive deep into plot and figure out those always-present tricky words. But, we need the books!

Our class needs sets of high-quality, engaging series books for students to read and reflect on together that mirror the diversity of our classroom and provide access for all levels of readers.

The books requested in the project have all been chosen to represent a diversity of ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds and life experiences that will allow my students to see themselves (and their friends) in our reading materials. Each series has delightful characters and themes that resonate with students of this age, regardless of whether they are intended for the highest readers in my classroom or those who are struggling. With these books in hand, we will conquer those tricky words and confusing plot points together!
